In its outstanding Edition Iannis Xenakis, Mode presents coherent programs that put the composer's hard-to-categorize works in context and help make his fierce but fascinating music more intelligible to a growing legion of admirers. This is the sixth volume in the series, covering six compositions for various configurations of strings that also broadly represent three key periods in Xenakis' ouevre. Of his early works, Syrmos and Analogique A+B (both 1959) exemplify the mathematically generated music Xenakis developed at the beginning of his career, filled with group glissandi, clustered harmonics, and scurrying pizzicato textures. Two compositions of his dynamic middle period, Aroura (1971) and Theraps (1975-1976), reflect the severity of the mythopoetic concepts that preoccupied Xenakis in that decade. The somewhat gnomic late pieces, Voile (1995) and the sextet Ittidra (1996), are hard to define in terms of techniques or time period, yet demonstrate a consolidation of Xenakis' ideas, particularly in the dense accumulations of sounds and interwoven arboresences in Voile. The Ensemble Resonanz, directed by Johannes Kalitzke, is incisive in its execution and thrilling for its shockingly brilliant timbres; and bassist John Eckhardt deserves special recognition for his heroic solo performance of Theraps, one of the most incredibly difficult pieces for bass ever composed. Mode's sound quality is absolutely superb.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 Years of Freedom

Italian violinist Fabio Biondi – famous especially for his interpretation of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons with his orchestra, Europa Galante – refuses to be compartmentalised. We take a look back at the career of a musician blessed with a supple mind and an extraordinary talent for the Baroque violin.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.
